We loved it! It's not as crowded, in September, as some of the others. It was easy to walk around and so much to do. Lots of food,shopping, harbor tours, and the aquarium within walking distance.

Darling Harbour is alive with cafes, restaurants on a range of prices, as well as activities and museums. There is free park land for children. A fun place for couples, friends and families to relax.

You can walk but will take around 30 mins but the best way is toget the ferry to circular quay from Darling harbour, you then pass under the bridge.

There is a few bar restaurants along Darling Harbour, including Hard Rock Cafe. We went there and it was very nice.
